 I've never tried it but have seen lots of recipes on here for it.  Do a search and they should come up.

This is similiar to taco soup, it's chicken tortilla soup.

 I used 2 chicken breasts that I had boiled and shredded. To that I added 2 cans of chicken broth, 1 cup of salsa, half a can of corn, and a tablespoon of taco seasoning. After it cooked and I served it up there was sour cream, shredded cheese, and of course tortilla chips to add to it. You could also add black beans.

this is what i make when i'm wanting taco soup


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn

  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water

Here's my recipe. Sorry it took so long to post....I had to make it myself for dinner first! I've used this recipe several times and we love it. I do leave the chilis out as my kids do not like spicy stuff...

Taco Soup

2 pounds ground beef

2 cups diced onions

2 (15 1/2-ounce) cans pinto beans

1 (15 1/2-ounce) can pink kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 (15 1/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained and rinsed

1 (14 1/2-ounce) can Rotel

2 (14 1/2-ounce) cans diced tomatoes

2 (4 1/2-ounce) cans diced green chilis (optional - I leave these out)

1 (1 1/4-ounce) package taco seasoning mix

1 (1-ounce) package ranch salad dressing mix

Corn chips, for serving

Sour cream, for garnish

Grated cheese, for garnish

Chopped green onions, for garnish

Go-alongs - this is a chili like soup, so I serve it alone with corn chips or flour tortillas, whichever you prefer

Brown the ground beef and onions in a large skillet; drain the excess fat, then transfer the browned beef and onions to a large slow cooker or a stockpot. Add the beans, corn, tomatoes, green chilis, taco seasoning, and ranch dressing mix, and cook in a slow cooker on low for 6 to 8 hours or simmer over low heat for about 1 hour in a pot on the stove. To serve, place a few corn chips in each bowl and ladle soup over them. Top with sour cream, cheese, green onions.
